Inside Kennedy Space Center

Kennedy Space Center is known to be the gateway to space exploration. KSC is also the home to America's Space Shuttle and the place where the ISS-International Space Station hardware assembled from. Last July 08, the final lift off of Atlantis served as the end of the era of Shuttle Program. This is the viewing area, the closest place where a visitor can view the launch of a shuttle.
Above is the picture of the launch pad. This is the closest viewing area, beyond this is strictly for employees and scientists only. You may click it to get the closer look.
This is the Rocket Garden and it's very unique for obvious reasons.
The big building at the far end is the assembly area of shuttle. The wide lanes are the path for the Crawler Transporter. You know when the shuttle will be transported to the launching pad, Crawler Transporter is the machine that will do it.
If you visit Florida, do not miss Kennedy Space Center and that would complete your Florida Travel.
